In a day and age of Facebook, Twitter and more statistics than you can shake a slide rule at, you would think there’s no way Hunter Lee could have flown under the radar.
But he did and now, Louisiana Tech University is having the last laugh.
As a senior running back at Class 5A Flower Mound High School in Texas, Lee had a combined 2,800 offensive yards (1,400 rushing and 1,400 receiving), 3,400 all-purpose yards and 38 touchdowns.

RPAR assistant, hoops’ fan
1. Who is your all-time favorite professional basketball player and why?
Michael Jeffrey Jordan. His love of the game of basketball and he does not like to lose and I don’t either.
I remember the Gatorade commercial, ‘I want to be like Mike” back in 2006.
2. Who is your favorite ESPN sports announcer and why? “Dickie V.” He knows the game of basketball and some of his catch phrases are funny.
Some of his phrases that I like are “Diaper Dandies,” “Dipsy-doo-Dunk-a-roo” and “Shoots the area code J.”.

Tigers show poise, confidence after sluggish start

GRAMBLING — Grambling State University has been a “rags to riches” story this season.
If you base how a team might fare on what they do during the first half of a campaign, then the Tigers were doomed for gloom this fall.
In their first five games, they won only once, that being a 21-14 finale in the opener against Alcorn State University.

OWS lacks structure, leadership

in

On Sept. 17, the streets of Lower Manhattan resembled the setup of Bonnaroo or Coachella music festivals. Despite the cultured people and tents packed in tightly to establish a sense of community, these people were not preparing to listen to Florence and the Machine.
Occupy Wall Street began its campaign that day with a march, and the movement has done nothing but flourish. It has spread to more than 100 cities across the United States and is taking college communities by storm.

In today’s fast-paced, no time for chit-chat society, it almost seems sad to know that another holiday has come and gone. It seems like no matter what is going on in the world, whether it be Thanksgiving, an upcoming election or even a child sex scandal at a major university, we just don’t take time to settle down and really think about what is going on.

Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Terry said he was thankful this year for the doctors in Lincoln Parish and other areas that are doing a great job of keeping him healthy.
“I was diagnosed with colon cancer in August, and I am just very thankful for the doctors in Lincoln Parish that found it early,” he said. “Everyone who has treated me has been wonderful, and they have all done fine work.”
